From the publisher

Translated from the French by Natasha Lehrer

A painter obsessively attempts to depict a mysterious female figure who keeps on appearing under his brush. An anonymous woman addresses letters to an absent loved one. Through deeply felt and moving images, Absence dramatises the role of the unconscious in artistic creation and the power of unconditional love.; In this masterful debut reminiscent of Rear Window, Lucie Paye weaves an intrigue that tells of redemption and the lies which destroy lives, all the while directing her reader, and her characters, with the deftness of the Master of Suspense.
